Purpose and goal

To validate and evaluate technical solutions for instrument design and commercialization of the next generation instruments for peptide synthesis, develop adequate production methods, and prepare for CE-certifications. Proof of concept was achieved in step 1. The prototype works well, but PeptiSystems has to prove that the technology, components, and software will work well in the final product that can be CE-certified and produced with a constant high quality.

Expected results and effects

This project means that PeptiSystems can make a final technical design of the instrument including drawings. This work includes: Development of 3D CAD drawings and internal and external design of the cabinet with the best placement of the different components in the instrument for optimal performance. Development of production methods for future manufacturing. This includes 2D CAD drawings for manufacturing and development of supply agreements. Generate documentation to support CE certification, including RoHS

Planned approach and implementation

The project is divided in three phases. In Phase one (Dec1, 2018 Apr 1, 2019) technical design solutions will be developed. In phase 2 (Apr 1, 2019-Jun 1, 2019) production methods will be developed. In phase 3 (Jun 1, 2019-Aug 1, 2019) documentation will be generated for CE-certification. Work in all three phases will be done together with an external engineering company.
